Abstract

We demonstrate wideband all-order polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensation by applying high-speed spectral polarization sensing and ultrafast pulse shaping techniques to characterize and correct the frequency-dependent Jones matrix associated with PMD of optical fibers on a wavelength-by-wavelength basis. We report full compensation of 800fs pulses distorted to more than 10ps by a PMD module with 5.5ps mean differential group delay. The sensing and compensation of Jones matrix take 200 and 500ms, respectively.
